The forecast for Michiganj
baseball this year has been first
in the Big Ten and third in the i
nation.
Senior pitcher Geoff Zahn was
to have played a major role in
the title race. With a record-
tying season of nine victories and
one loss, he was considered the
best in the Big Ten.;

"In a leam sport I don't think any
person mares that much difference. I
think they'll -et along fine without me,
they have many fine pitchers left."

Last month Zahn signed with
the Los Angeles Dodgers, and is
no longer eligible for college base-
ball.
Zahn justifies his move, "I've
been drafted four times within
the last two years, but I've been
content to stay in school until
now.
"Since the Baltimore Orioles or
the Dodgers were the only two
teams I wanted to play for I
didn't want to pass up this oppor-
tunity.
"If I didn't sign now I'd be up
for grabs again in June and some
other team might choose me. My
record has been almost perfect,
and I think I'm ready to move
up."
"It's too bad the system works
this way. I'd like to play another

we have eight boys left and the
four we'll rely on the most are all

Zahn feels the loss is not of
great significance. "The team ran
into the same thing last year. Bob
Reed signed at the beginning of
last season. We all felt we had to
really work hard to make up for
the loss. As a result we did better
without him.

to begin working out. In the
meantime he will practice with
the Michigan team.

By Tne Associated Press
It took Duke three overtimes to
overcome North Carolina, but that
was all the Blue Devils needed to
shoot from 10th to sixth in The
Associated Press' major college
basketball poll.
At the same time, the loss to
Duke plus a defeat by South Caro-
lina earlier last week, sent North
Carolina tumbling from third to
fifth in the next-to-last poll of the
season.
Houston, remained No. 1 as it
finished its regular season sched-
ule unbeaten in 27 games, and
UCLA remained right on the Cou-
gars' heels in the No. 2 slot.
But St. Bonaventure, 21-0,
climbed to third and Kentucky,
21-4, to fourth each moving up
one notch.
New Mexico, 23-3,2remained No.
7, but Columbia, 20-4, dropped
from sixth to eighth after losing
to Princeton 68-57. Louisville, 19-6,
stayed No. 9.

Davidson joined the Top Ten in
the 10th spot on the basis of three
victories' in the Southern Confer-
ence tournament. The Wildcats
whipped West Virginia, 87-70 in
Saturday's final. Marquette, eighth
last week, dropped from the rank-
ings after losing two of three
games last week. The Warriors
lost to Xavier, Ohio, 88-83 and
Western Michigan 73-66.
Duke started out last week by
defeating North Carolina State 71-
61 and then edged North Carolina
87-86 in its three-overtime game
Saturday. That gave the Blue
Devils a 20-4 record and made the.
Tar Heels 22-3.

Carolina also was by 87-86. Both
teams will be shooting for a berth
in the NCAA tournament in the

rickets for President Fleming's Inauguration
Monday, March 11, 1968
A limited number of additional general admission tickets to President Fleming's
inauguration are available for faculty members, students, and staff members who would
like to attend this ceremony. The inauguration is scheduled at 3:00 p.m., Monday,
March 11 in Hill Auditorium. Tickets will be available on a first come, first served
basis upon presentation of an individual's identification card. Tickets will be limited
to two per person and will be distributed from the first floor information desk of the
Administration Building in keeping with the following schedule:

You can go to Iowa City,
Iowa, to cover the Big Ten
Wrestling Meet and get a whole
lot more than you bargain for.
You can find out that that
huge expense account (well, it
sure looked big before you left)
dwindles away in huge leaps
and cash transactions.
Half - fare - standing - by for
nine hours is not fun, even if
there is a girl going to Chicago
who's been there almost as long
as you have.
And from the traveler's rule-
book comes this interesting bit
of advice: "... in the event of
one's finding oneself short of
cash, one of the easy ways to
save funds is to cut back on
eating - both the amount and
the kind of food. If this is done
correctly, one will . ."
So it's three days of eating
Greasy-Burgers and getting
weird looks when you ask for
a receipt.
You would besabsolutely
amazed at how easy it is to
get space on a plane after the
crowds have thinned. You
might also be absolutely amazed
at the hour at which this
occurs.
Try getting a ride by thumb-
ing along one of the straight-
est, flattest, loneliest highways
that you can imagine. Now try
it at 3:13 am.
However, time is a nebulous
concept to the occupants of a
freshman dorm, and life there

goes on with little regard for
the socially accepted hours of
semi-unconscious slumber.
It is here that you reach the
end of your travels, and after
the informalities of introducing
yourself and telling why you
are here, your head hits a
makeshift pillow of three odious
tennis shoes wrapped in a towel,
the whole mess in a clean pil-
lowcase.
But after the meet is over,
and you've almost figured out
the campus, it's back to the
airport where you happen to
be on the same plane as the
Michigan State wrestling team.
(Who incidentally won the
team championship, in case
you don't read Daily sports.)
They beat you at euchre as
bad as they beat your team on
the mats, and everyone laughs
and remembers and they chide
you gently about writing down
every word so there will be
some juicy quotes for the new-
est Slush - Fund'- Scandal -
Expose.
At Chicago, we charlged
planes. They went to Flight
299, nonstop to Capital City
Airport, and I went to Flight
474, jet Mainliner service di-
rect to Metro Airport.
And as I got back to Ann Ar-
bor, I tried to remember what
had happened, and how, and
how very far away I had been
and now I was home.
